Sri Lanka, Asia: Evangelism and church growth are priorities, but also present are many sober and serious challenges that need a major shift: a) The fixation with rapid growth has led to prioritizing winning converts rather than making disciples, to attracting crowds with promises of miracles rather than with Christ-like character, to filling seats instead of meeting needs, to a lack of accountability and to unhealthy competitiveness. b) The need for workers pushes undertrained and immature Christians into roles for which they are not prepared. It also allows unsuitable people to assume positions of ministry and church leadership on the false assumption that secular success equates to spiritual anointing.  www.operationworld.org
